Shuffle Master COO Departs; Board Member Added

Shuffle Master, Inc. President, Chief Operating Officer and Secretary Paul C. Meyer decided to leave the company when his contract expired October 31 to “pursue other opportunities.”

Meyer will be available to work for the company as a part-time employee for a limited amount of time, but he will no longer perform the tasks of the COO.

Chairman and CEO Mark Yoseloff released a statement thanking Meyer for his work with the company: “In the five years since Paul joined Shuffle Master, he has been instrumental in a variety of key initiatives that have positioned our Company for future growth and success. On behalf of Shuffle Master’s worldwide family, I would like to thank Paul for his unwavering dedication to our strategic objectives and the role he has played in making Shuffle Master a stronger, more diverse global company. We wish him well in his future endeavors.”

The company also announced the selection of Bill Warner, former Station Casinos executive vice president and COO, to join the company’s board of directors.

Warner worked for Station Casinos for 14 years, overseeing daily operations as well as future projects. Before becoming vice president, he worked in the finance department.

Yoseloff said Warner’s experience in the industry contributed to the company’s decision to select him as a new board member.

“Bill’s extensive gaming background and executive leadership experience make him ideally suited for our board,” Yoseloff said. “I am confident that Bill will be an important contributor to our board and look forward to working with him.”
